Bihzhu performed at No Black Tie last week. Here is a excerpt taken from her site :
Formerly one-half of the popular pop-jazz duo, Rhapsody and dub outfit Layan Sound System, Bihzhu is the stage incarnation of Nicole Foo. Despite no formal musical training, Bihzhu’s ear for melodic twists, and intuitive jazz and soul inflections have led her on a songwriting journey since going solo in January 2011.
The results of which are found in her debut album Nightingale Tales. Elements of jazz, soul, reggae, acapella and pop roll effortlessly through the six-track album, united by genuine songcraft that celebrates love, beauty and life’s most treasured moments. And at the heart of it all is that voice – a smooth, sultry and smoky blend evoking past greats such as Ella Fitzgerald and Teresa Teng.
Here are some shots from the night :
